Trump Travels to Paris Next Nov. 11 to Commemorate End of World War I

WASHINGTON – US President Donald Trump announced Friday that he will travel to Paris next Nov. 11 to commemorate Armistice Day, marking the end of World War I.

He said on his Twitter account that he will “go to the Paris parade, celebrating the end of the War, on November 11th.”

The president said he had also “cancelled” the military parade in Washington that was planned for the same day to coincide with Veterans Day in the United States, due to the “ridiculously high” cost estimated by the authorities.

“Maybe we will do something next year in D.C. when the cost comes WAY DOWN,” he added.

The decision to put off the US parade came the same day that it was leaked to US media that it would cost $92 million, far more than originally estimated.

Trump asked the Pentagon last February to organize the event after being singularly impressed the year before in Paris by the military parade on Bastille Day, July 4, to which he was invited by French President Emmanuel Macron.

The United States has not organized a large-scale military parade since June 1991, after winning the First Gulf War and with Republican George H.W. Bush in the White House.
